Check with Khang Auto and see if it is really gearbox problem. It might be something else.

unless ur car is very rare, otherwise, most workshop will usuallytrade in the faulty gearbox with re-condition one... just like what they do for alternator.

Hi. Last wkend my AT gears refused to shift from 1st gear n I sent to the WS for repairs. They changed the sensor n reprogrammed it but informed me that the condition of my gearbox is not gd. They recommended me to overhaul it at $3,600 (warranty 10,000km) or they can replace with a reconditioned one (japam import n warranty 2 wks) at $1,400. Currently my gears change is still ok n relatively smooth but seemed noiser than before (not sure if is imagination) and sluggish when going beyond 80km/hr.

Like to seek advice on whether I shld get an overhaul or reconditioned one since the difference ard $2,200. The WS say will provide me with another car for free while my car is in e WS (2 - 4 days). I driving a Mazda 3SP n COE expiring ard 2 yrs 5 mths. TIA!

3.6k is a little on the high side for a Mazda3. Ask around for a better pricing so that you can make an informed decision. If not too much difference and you intend to keep the car for a few more years, overhual is better, recon GB is always a gamble (might break down on the 7th month).

drive until GB fail.

 

Failure of GB appears most at the 1st 2 gears where they are subjected to most torque.

 

Bottom line, dont listen to workshop.

Cost varies depending on different workshops and type of ATF used, can't advise in this aspect as I usually supply my own ATF.

The process itself, if not combined with other jobs, is quick. Can be done within half an hour.

 

If it's just old, bad ATF causing gearbox sluggishness or rough shifts, the improvement can usually be felt within one change, but it's recommended to do two ATF changes (the next one 10k km later or during your next engine oil change) as with the drain and fill method, not all the old fluid will be drained. Usually only 3 to 5 litres will be added (in my experience, about 3.7 litres each time for Mazda 3), and this will mix with the old fluid.

 

Regarding changing the gearbox, it would be better to seek a second or even a third opinion from different workshops. Some workshops are very quick to suggest replacement or complete overhaul, but others are able to save money for customers by repairing the faulty parts instead of just swapping things out.

1 rebuild/overhaul can buy 2 reconditioned gearbox...
